The details make the difference at the show home at Seven Peaks, Polygon’s community of townhomes in Squamish.

Polygon senior interior designer Sofie Laforest and her design team use subtle fabric patterns, custom-designed millwork and bold sculptural beauty in functional pieces to leave visitors with the impression of the space as a home that embraces family warmth without sacrificing sophistication.

In the kitchen, fine touches make a big impact on texture and pattern, setting the room apart. Horizontal patterns on wall coverings, the intricately designed fabric of the kitchen island seating, moulding above kitchen cabinets and a warm, taupe-coloured nook that the Polygon team has crafted into a small lounge, all set the home apart.

 “Small details are always important. As a designer, you have to plan out the whole space, but it all comes together with the final little details. In essence, it’s the finishing touch,” says Celia Dawson, senior vice-president of design for Polygon, who leads the designers.
The crown detail was designed by Sofie Laforest herself as a sophisticated touch that unites the cabinets to the ceiling.
“Sofie designed a contemporary home with a West Coast simplicity. She wanted to finish the walls and ceilings with a sophisticated trim without the curves and details of a more traditional crown moulding detail,” Dawson notes.

Dynamic social and family living lies at the heart of the design of the Seven Peaks display. (Case in point: the designers’ joyful approach to decorating the children’s bedrooms). But Laforest and the Polygon designers also used this space to showcase the potential for grown-up taste.

Polygon can be relied on to include stunning sculptural artwork or functional pieces like lighting. The dining room chandelier steals the spotlight, with its spike-like fixtures; this abstract piece is bound to stimulate discussion during gatherings and sets a refined ambiance, Dawson says.

 “I find it creates a wonderful canopy over the dining table and creates a warm and inviting setting for dinner conversation.”
The opportunity to decorate children’s rooms gave Laforest and her colleagues free rein to play with colour and shape. The designers incorporated a suspended train track and a little loft house in the rooms. The classic pieces (refreshingly absent: branded cartoon characters) are sure to inspire nostalgia among adult home hunters.

“Kids’ rooms are always fun to decorate,” Dawson says. “Once you start having fun and letting the ‘kid in you’ come out, the challenge is only to stop the creativity flow, or tailor back.”
